Paglaom is a Bisaya (Filipino dialect) word which means Hope. “Paglaom Always” is an abstract illustration of a rainbow in dark hue. We remember the rainbow as a prominent symbol of hope in the Bible. “Paglaom Always” encourages us to hope at all times and cling to the Lord at all cost. God sometimes takes what is perfect and subjects us to a humble status so that a greater good might be accomplished. Take hope! This stage of suffering is merely a transitional period. Trust in His timing and His beautiful plans for you.
My artwork depicts Father Abraham reaching his hands out toward the dark starry sky, in awe of the promise from God that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars. He had faith in God’s promise, and this was counted to him as righteousness. The painting is a rallying call to all Christians to have faith in God’s awesome promises and wait upon the Lord.
